Whimsical Pink + Gold Dallas Wedding: Emily + Eric

texas wedding

Pink + gold is a wedding color combo that will never get old, right? It’s just so pretty, whimsical + FUN! We’re so glad Emily + Eric agree and decided to use that palette for their January Dallas wedding, because these two did it right for sure! The pink-infused arrangements + bouquets by Bows & Arrows were total perfection, Sweet Pea Events crafted some serious loveliness for the reception, and Emily rocked the sweetest pink heels from Anthropologie. E + E’s day is truly an inspiration for other couples who want to use this playful palette, too! Let’s hear a bit more about it all Emily:

When Eric and I first started talking about what we wanted for our wedding, we both agreed that first and foremost we wanted to create a joyful and inviting atmosphere where we could laugh, dance and celebrate with our closest family and friends. Neither Eric nor I are very formal and we knew we wanted a lighthearted, fun and flirty wedding. The gorgeous floral arrangements (which included pops of blue thistle per the groom’s request that everything not be pink) throughout the venue and glittery, gold accents really set the stage for the night. The small touches of DIY pieces here and there added some personal touches and sweet snapshots into our world.

Thanks so much to Sara & Rocky Photography for the beautiful images + big congrats to Emily + Eric!

Our most memorable moment of our wedding day was without a doubt the first look. The moment was pure joy, it’s was so peaceful and natural. For a sweet moment, it’s like all of the rushing subsided and it was just us. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect moment before all of the excitement of the wedding ceremony and reception. Having just a couple minutes to embrace each other made the rest of the day that much more special!

My advice for couples planning their wedding is to not lose sight of the end goal. Eric and I found ourselves (mostly me) talking only about the wedding plans. Our engagement was less than 6 months and our world pretty quickly became about the wedding. It took a conscious effort to make sure we were taking time to ourselves outside of the wedding planning. We wanted to ensure our focus remained on our relationship, not the color of the table linens or the guest list. So love on your fiancé and remember that underneath all of the planning, it’s the two of you.

Whimsical Malibu Ranch Engagement: Maria + Phil

malibu engagement session

What better way to head into the beautiful weekend ahead than with a super gorgeous + whimsical e-session, captured by the talented Katie Shuler! Maria + Phil were inspired by GWS to create a romantic + one-of-a-kind environment for their engagement photos. Love to hear that! :) They worked with some of the fab existing elements at the location – like the awesome views , boho teepee, and donkey (named Stella!) – and then added in a few touches of their own, like big bunches of seasonal flowers, fun textiles, and, of course, great attire! They wanted the setting to represent the two of them as well as Maria’s Ecuadorian culture. The end result has such a special + magical feel. Let’s hear a few words from the beautiful bride-to-be:

When it came to our engagement photos, we knew we wanted them to reflect our journey together. We ended up coming across Great Spirits Ranch in Malibu, and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for our photos. We were both amazed at how much it reminded us of Ecuador–from the mountain views and colorful decor, to the llamas and donkeys that live there. We didn’t want to leave! Katie did such a beautiful job capturing that experience for us. These photos symbolize not just this period in our lives, but also the beginning of our love story.

Sweet Washington Barn Wedding: Rachel + Michael

washington barn wedding

If you love typography + graphics as much as we do, you’re going to go crazy over Rachel + Michael’s sweet Washington barn wedding! In addition to lots of pretty, personal details, the beautiful hand-lettered paper goods + signage (designed by a friend of the couple) really made this fun celebration so delightfully unique. And it was definitely fitting considering Michael is a graphic designer! The reception was decked out with moss-covered branches, succulents in terrariums, antlers, and fun antique finds. And you definitely won’t want to miss their super rad ceremony backdrop! Every little piece of this wedding is so fun and screams R + M!

We know that paper cranes are a popular wedding decor element + we’re still hearting them big time. They’re especially relevant to Rachel + Michael, so it was a must that they were included in their big day. Here’s why: When Michael and I first started dating 3 years ago, it was quickly evident that we were meant to spend our lives together. We had so much in common and just loved being in each others company. On one of our first dates to one of our favorite restaurants, our waiter told us that he liked to fold origami and that he had made us a paper crane. He told us that the crane represented a lifetime of luck and love. The crane officially became “our thing”. Two years later, when Mike proposed, he compiled all of the prayers and love letters he had written me over the course of our relationship and folded them into 100+ cranes strung from the ceiling of an old chapel in Coeur d’Alene. As we started designing and planning our wedding, we both knew it wouldn’t be “us” unless we incorporated our cranes.

So sweet, right? Thanks a bunch to Crissie McDowell for the beautiful photography + big congrats to Rachel + Michael!
